Study of a Silicon Carbide MOSFET power module to establish the benefits of adding anti-parallel Schottky diodes (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Trentin, A., Hind, D., Degano, M., Tighe, C., Arevalo, S. L., Yang, L., …Packwood, M. (2018). Study of a Silicon Carbide MOSFET power module to establish the benefits of adding anti-parallel Schottky diodes. In 2018 IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE)doi:10.1109/ecce.2018.8557415

The majority of commercial Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFET based power modules available on the market today also include SiC Schottky diodes placed in anti-parallel with the MOSFETs. Using an accurate electrical and thermal simulation model this paper... Read More

Use of optical fibres for multi-parameter monitoringin electrical AC machines (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Hind, D. M., Gerada, C., Galea, M., Borg Bartalo, J., Fabian, M., Sun, T., & Grattan, K. T. (2017). Use of optical fibres for multi-parameter monitoringin electrical AC machines

This paper describes a new approach to multi-parameter monitoring for electrical AC machines. It is demonstrated that speed, torque and temperature can be measured using optical fibres incorporating sensors in the form of fibre Bragg gratings (FBGs)... Read More

Realising robust low speed sensorless PMSM control using current derivatives obtained from standard current sensors (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Hind, D., Li, C., Sumner, M., & Gerada, C. (2017). Realising robust low speed sensorless PMSM control using current derivatives obtained from standard current sensors

This paper describes the implementation of a simple, robust and cost-effective sensorless control technique for PMSM machines. The method uses stator current derivative measurements made in response to certain PWM vectors. In this work the derivative... Read More
